What is an eMAR System?

An Electronic Medication Administration Record (eMAR) system is a solution designed to replace traditional paper-based MAR charts. eMAR systems help agencies provide higher-quality care for their patients and see better outcomes from caregivers through transparent medication management.

Foothold Technology’s eMAR system replaces traditional paper MAR charts and offers a streamlined, secure, and integrated solution that enhances medication administration, ensures compliance, and significantly reduces medication errors. Our eMAR system ensures the 6 rights of medication administration—right patient, right drug, right dose, right route, right time, and right documentation—are met, improving overall safety and compliance for each individual.

We easily connect care providers to pharmacy dispensing systems, providing easy access to up-to-date medication data and offering flexibility to work with preferred pharmacies.
